Eco Schools Committee
The Green Team
St. Thomas More has a newly established ‘Green Team’ which is part of the Eco-Schools initiative.
The Green Team is made up of volunteers from Years 2 – 6. Mrs Heard is the link teacher.
Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 64 different countries, making it the largest environmental schools programme in the world.
The Eco-Schools programme provides a framework for learning and action around nine topics:
· global citizenship
· healthy living
· school grounds
The programme is pupil-led and encourages whole school involvement. It also encourages closer links between schools and their communities.
For our first Green Team activity we are running a competition for Fairtrade Fortnight and hope everyone in the school will design a poster! Click on our flyer to find out more FairtradeFortnight_posterCompetition
